A loan of $2,975 helps a member to buy aluminium, cardboard, plastic and other products to resell.


8 De Diciembre Group's story

The group called "8 de Diciembre" was created in the city of Pilar. Each member has the desire to be able to move their family forward and cover their daily necessities.

Lucina is one of the members. She is a mother of 3 children and has managed to move them forward and provide for their needs alone. She says that she earns a living through recycling and also meals that she makes herself to order. She is a person who battles tirelessly for her children, because she does not want them to go without as she is doing. She further mentions that she is looking for the way to be able to continue growing, which is why she joined this committee and always participates actively.

She asked for this loan to buy recycled materials to resell, such as aluminium, cardboard, plastic and other products.
